the tree

that was clear as mud wasn't it?

i went into photoshop and enlarged the tree image, printed it on paper, and pinned the paper to the piece to visualize placement. see right:

then i took several photos.
this is one of them

i decided i liked it better without the screen printed organza behind it, so took several without it... (not pictured)

i then back into photoshop and erased most of the white paper from the orinted page to get a better idea of what it would look like once it was printed onto the piece.

and got this (see below) a photo of the image, printed on paper, (with most of the white background gone), and pinned to my piece...

which allowed me to get an idea of what it would look like,
and make sure that the scale was right.

i burned the screen, and then printed it onto the piece.
pictured below in last post.
i hope that is a little clearer!
why does who's on first keep running thru my head?? ;-)

Thanks, Clare. It all makes sense now. And it looks great! I have never tried screen printing directly on a pieced background.

Thank you, Claire...when I last looked at your blog this post wasn't up...sometimes I need to hit the refresh button to get the most recent post. Thanks for the explanation...all I wanted was to know if you had screened this or not...the process was a bonus! HOw big is this piece?
